Our Spiritual Theme

Our Spiritual Theme for 2018-2021 is “Seek Justice, Love Kindness & Mercy, Walk Humbly with God” comes from Micah 6:8. This three-year theme will focus on Catholic social teachings, aligned with global competencies and encourages learners to think globally and act locally.

 

“He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God.”

Scripture Passage

Micah 6:8 (NRSV)

Seek Justice

(2018-2019 school year)

Focusing on social justice to introduce Catholic social teaching as a lens for learning.

Through faith we are called to justice and through justice we are called to faith. We find the call to justice throughout scripture. The Good News that we proclaim is liberty to captives, hope to those in poverty, freedom to those in oppression, and sight to the blind.

Love Kindness & Mercy

(2019-2020 school year)

Focusing on healthy relationships and family.

God is love. This concept can never be explored fully, and yet, it is the culmination of the hope of humanity. The discernment of this year can be on good friendships, avoiding all that can hinder healthy community. This will be meaningful to both staff and students.

Walk Humbly with God

(2020-2021 school year)

Focusing on promoting humility and an awareness of our need for God’s mercy and love in our lives. 

We are called to live an authentic faith, close to our God in lifelong discovery leading to transformation. This depth of awareness enhances our personal wellness and encourages us to participate in God’s restorative justice.
